The Pre-Kindergarten programme is currently located at Beechboro campus only and is available for children currently enrolled to attend Kindergarten at JSRACS.

What is Pre-Kindy?
Pre-Kindy is an educational programme for children aged three years. The programme is play-based and provides children with meaningful experiences that promote the development of spiritual, social, emotional, language, intellectual, creative and physical skills. The staff will create a caring, safe and stimulating environment that will nurture your child’s disposition to wonder, explore and construct meaning about the world.

Who Can Attend?
Regulations prevent us taking a child until they have turned three years old. If your child has not turned three years old when the programme commences they may be enrolled the week following their third birthday. Some conditions apply, including the child being able to toilet themselves, with support available through the Pre-Kindergarten staff.

For further enrolment information please contact the school office.
